FRS pre-workout and Muscle Milk post-workout??

Friend of mine, a cyclist, just got taken on by this local elite training center. He said one of the things they have him do, is to drink FRS pre-workout, and Muscle Milk post-workout.

I think the FRS is supposed to be for energy, and I guess the Muscle Milk is to help build muscle.

Why wouldn't they have him eat or drink all-natural stuff to achieve the same result? Does this sound like just a gimmick?

Here's the web site for this training place. http://www.p3.md (wfs)

Re: FRS pre-workout and Muscle Milk post-workout??

If you would have to ask me, I'd say that's just their "Quick Fix" to the energy and muscle building problem. But who knows, maybe they are on to something! (Unlikely)

Over priced on Muscle Milk? Definitely. But I'd prefer a Muscle Milk shake over any other Milk Shake any day, they are just so dang tasty and a heck of a lot healthier than a normal milk shake. Anyways, running off topic...

I'd be interested in the methodology behind it! Sure I am quick to say that it is crap and whole foods is the answer. But I can appreciated free thought and fresh ideas. Maybe they do have something.

Re: FRS pre-workout and Muscle Milk post-workout??

There was a study done on post workout drinks comparing Chocolate Milk (2% I think) vs. some product like muscle milk, and the "results" were better for chocolate milk. The study compared how the different nutrients (different kinds of sugar in the milk vs the supplement, different kinds of protein and fat) effected insulin levels and I believe 2 or 3 other things. I know I got the link for this off of the boards I just have to find it again. I will edit this post if/when i find it.

Re: FRS pre-workout and Muscle Milk post-workout??

Muscle milk is more of a meal replacement protein blend than a post workout protein blend, I'm not surprised they're rate normal milk over the Musle Milk for post workout absorbtion.

I personally prefer to sip on a protein shake (simple whey protein and waxy maize) throughout my workout (ie. while I'm there, not necessarily during the WOD), and then eat my whole food meal about 30 minutes after my workout. Seems to work for me.

How do you define a "healthier" shake? Have you looked at the ingredient list of muscle milk?

Compare that to a homemade shake...eggs, cream, maple syrup, fruit...

I think he was referring to a "normal milkshake" as something you'd pick up at McDonald's etc. What you listed with eggs, cream, maple syrup etc is not a "normal" milkshake. lol
